Delicious Food, Excellent Company
This houseboat dinner was fantastic! The food was incredibly delicious. I'm a vegetarian myself, so I loved seeing the vegetarian menu (the meat eaters in the group also loved the meal despite the traditional proteins). We had an extra large crowd the night of our dinner, but the hosts handled it splendidly. It was lovely getting to chat with the different groups from different backgrounds. Carl and Roberto were amazing hosts, and did I mention great chefs as well? There were very attentive servers and drink-refillers, and held great conversations with everyone. It was so fascinating to tour the houseboat and see their recent, beautiful renovations. The houseboat is centrally located to downtown and easy enough to find. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and partake again if I ever find myself back in the area. Thank you for a fantastic evening!
was absolutely delightful, special and delish.
loved the hosts and the company we met at the dinner party. could not have had a more interesting special night in amsterdam that was private and personal. felt like we lived there for a moment.
enjoyed all of it and the boat is just gorgeous and hip. GO!
Our dinner was a lovely and special experience on the houseboat of our hosts Robertino and Carl. Nice atmosphere, delicious food, cozy and intimate setting.

Carl and his boat are both divine!
Highly recommend! We were a group of four on a girls weekend. Carl was a wonderful host and guide, and his boat is gorgeous.
Very nice trip in every regard!
This was an fantastic afternoon. Not only is a canal cruise the best way to see Amsterdam but our guides were excellent. Karl and his partner were fun, laid back and full of information about Amsterdam. They filled up our drinks, provided great conversation and took us to all the great spots. I've been on the canals before and this was by far the best one. Highly recommend these guys! I'll be booking again when we have other guests.
A pleasant time
Karl and his partner run a lovely job, and you can feel that atmosphere. Since the beginning he was available on several emails exchanges to make all doubts cleared. The tour itself was nice and comfortable. He explain main things but also let you enjoy the view and the peace around the canals while tasting a french red wine. Super! Thanks buddies!
